Students of the Swiss School Bangkok are representatives of the school to the outside. This is especially important when they make a public appearance, or go on field trips or excursions. If the outward appearance and dress of the students does not meet the standards of the school, the parents may be directly contacted and requested to provide their children with clothing that complies with the rules.
The teachers of Swiss School Bangkok are to take note of those students who do not wear correct school dress and warn them. If these students are found for a second time in outfits that are against the rules, they can be suspended from attending school for one day. The homeroom teacher informs the parents about violations of the uniform code and, where applicable, about the suspension from class. If the violation occurs again, students are suspended from school for two days, or other appropriate disciplinary measures may be imposed.
On school days, all students are required to be in the prescribed school clothing from the time they set foot on the school property until they leave to go home (Detailed rules are provided in the School Dress Code and §7 of the School Regulations).
